Last week, the students in the 6/7 class explored the art of Andria Beighton, an Australian artist based in Melbourne. Andria paints abstract, large scale flower-themed pieces which we studied in order to identify the elements that characterise her style.

The students then planned and executed their own abstract piece. We used coloured card instead of paint, as this medium allowed us to achieve a crisp result, similar to Andria’s style.
